department as you mentioned did welcome those u.n. aligned inspectors to come into the polling places and republican state representative darrell metcalf called that illegal and he says he will ask the u.n. observers be removed or be arrested and prosecuted. the texas attorney general made it very clear he wants the u.n. observers to stay at least 100 feet away from every polling place in texas. now the iowa secretary of state says 300 feet from any iowa polling place. listen. >> we want to make sure people knew what the law was. we were very firm in letting everyone know that u.n. observers are not aloud at iowa polls. there has been a little bit of controversy. >> reporter: to make sure that happens in iowa, pennsylvania and texas, they have more republican monitors to make sure those u.n.' observers stand clear no closer than 100 feet in texas and 300 feet in iowa. megyn: the guys on the set say ohio is not the new girl at the dance. pennsylvania is like the girl i used to date and she lost a bunch of weight and you take a second look at but, but nah. talking about getting attentio
it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in ge
told bus that. >> we were very firm inletting everyone know that u.n. observers are not allowed at iowa polls. obviously there's been a little bit of controversy. it's not something i thought i'd be talking about the week before the election, but my job is to enforce the law and that's what we are going to do. >> reporter: those observers have been warned. they face arrest if they do try to enter polling places here in iowa. something else to watch in the hawk-eye state is the battle over same-sex marriage. in 2009 the state supreme court here legalized same say the marriage. that galvanized conservatives who have been battling that every since. also at stake is the state senate. if they gain control of the senate they'll control both houses. that is critical for them to try to ban same-sex marriage. that organization fight which is very carefully crafted by evangelical christians in iowa can affect the top of the ticket. here is a professor. >> i think the presence of this same-sex marriage issue in control of the iowa state senate and retention of an iowa supreme court justice, all th
aligned, by the way, with the u.n. but they come from about 63 to 68 different countries, and you have to remember that texas and iowa and pennsylvania said stay away from our polling places or else. but many other places they were welcomed, and after watching our election process, their takeaway was: astonishment. i mean, they were amazed that most u.s. states don't require voter id. they were confused about why there's no uniform system that each state kind of does its own thing, and they were puzzled by provisional ballots. that's where you walk in, and if your name's not on the voter rolls, you still have eligibility to vote, and then they check your status later on, if ever. they also commented on the lack of police presence at polling places, and they wondered how it is we keep people from sending in numerous ballots when you have mail-in ballots, and many, of course, have wondered the same thing. keep in mind, many of these observers come from countries where you give a thumb print to actually prove that you're a voters, you know, fingerprinted. and in gambia, megyn, they give y
. here's what he told them. >> we were very firm in letting everyone know that u.n. observers are not allowed at iowa polls. obviously, there's been a little bit of controversy. it's not something i thought i'd be talking about the week before the election, but my job is to enforce the law, and can that's what we're going to do. >> reporter: iowa law does forbid those international poll monitors from being inside, and they will be arrested if that happens today in iowa. another thing to watch here is down ballot. there is a fight brewing about same-sex marriage. in 2009 the state supreme court legalized same-sex marriage, and that really motivated conservatives and evangelical christians here in iowa. they have successfully voted out three of the justices, today a fourth is on the ballot and also on the ballot, the state senate. it is narrowly controlled by democrats, conservatives are working hard to regain control of it so they can pass legislation regarding same-sex marriage. we talked to politics professor dennis goldfer from drake university about that. >> for the republi
ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. you say today our adversaries are breathing a sigh of relief, why? >> i think they have sized up president obama during his first term. they've seen he's a weak, inch attentive leader. they are not going to wait around for us to get our economic house in order. i think almost certainly during his second term that the pace and the scope of challenges that the united states will face will accelerate. jenna: why? >> you've named some of them. because they see a president who doesn't really concern himself with foreign affairs, who doesn't see, for example, iran's continuing progress toward nuclear weapons as the threat that it is. you have president putin who has already congratulated president obama on his re-election, undoubtedly thinking of the famous conversation with former president, russian president medevev about how flexible president obama will be after the re-election. now it's come to pass. why shouldn't they be happy. jenna: let's think about what you would say to the president -- you're laughing. you can't take him off the
